The company had announced a closed beta test for the Pie update program for the devices, about 2 months ago. And after ironing out the kinks that users reported during the beta, the update has finally been released for all users.
In case you have forgotten, OnePlus had promised to deliver the Android Pie Update for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T about ten months ago. It took an awfully long wait to get here, but it’s better late than never I suppose.
